Solutions:
1. D) The pattern is ×0.5 – 1; ×1 – 2; ×2 – 4; ×4 – 8;
2. C) The pattern is +(25 × 1); +(25 × 4); +(25 × 9); +(25 ×16); +(25 × 25);
3. B) The pattern is 5^3 – 3; 6^3 – 3; 7^3 – 3; 8^3 – 3; 9^3 – 3; 10^3 – 3;
4. B) The pattern is each number is multiplied by 1.5
5. A) The pattern is of double difference
6. D) ? =5.5% of 225+7.5% of 625-18.6% of 182 =12.375+46.875-33.852 ≈12+47-34=25
7. E) ? =√2.25+√6.76+√9.61+√10.89-√23.04 =1.5+2.4+3.1+3.3-4.8=10.3-4.8 =10.3-4.8≈10-5=5
8. D) ? = 4.4÷1.1×5.89-(2.26+3.86+2.96+5.89) = (4×6)-(2+4+3+6) ≈24-15=9
9. A) (2.42)²+ (2.68)²+? = (5.96)²+ (7.89)²+ (2.9)²+ (3.1)²≈ (6)²+ (8)²+ (3)²+ (3)²
≈36+64+9+9=118
? = 118 {(2.42)²+(2.68)²}
= 118 – (5.86+7.18) ≈118-{6+7} =118-13=105
10. C) ? = (9.1×5.7×6.72×9.5)-(1.9×2.1×1.7×3)≈ 9×6×7×9.5-(2×2×2×3)
≈ 3591-24=3567≈3568
11. C) Cost Price of Steel = Rs.12000
Transportation cost = Rs.3000
Total cost = Rs.15000
Profit = 8%
Selling Price = 15000* 108/100 = Rs.16200
12. D) Selling price of Bricks = Cost Price + Cost of transportation + Profit = 7000 + 2000 + 2000 = 11000
Cost price of Cement = Selling price + Cost of transportation + Profit = 9000 + 1500 + 2000 = 12500
Percentage = 11000*100/12500 = 88%
13. B) Selling price of Bricks = 11000
Selling price of Glass = 7500*107/100 = 8025
Difference = 2975
14. A) Loss on Timber = C.P – S.P = 100*4500/95 – 4500 = 236.84
Loss on Cement = 2000
Difference = 1764
15. B) Selling price of steel = 15000*90/100 = 13500
Selling price of glass = 8025
Percentage = 8025/13500 * 100 = 59.44
16. A) 10000×12 : 12000×10 : 7200 × 8 = 25 : 25 : 12
Profit = 2× (72000-10000) = 124000
A= 50000
17. E) 240
A = 12 ---------- 20
B = 16 ---------- 15
C = 20 ---------- 12
In every 6 hr 94 unit can be filled (i.e. 20+15+12+20+15+12=94)
In 22 hour this can happen thrice 
So, 282 unit can be filled 
For 22 hr pipe, A will be open and will fill 20 unit
For last 40-minute pipe, B will be open and can fill 10 unit
So, 282+20+10=312 unit is filled
Water that is drained out is 312 – 240 = 72 
72 unit in 3 hours
240 unit in 10 hours
18. B) R : M = 5 : 7
M : P = 5 : 7
R : M : P = 25 : 35 : 49
25 + 35 + 49 = 109
19. C) Let, Distance between X and Y = d
Distance travelled by A while it meets B = d + 11
Distance travelled by B while it meets A = d – 11 
Distance travelled by B while it meets C = d + 9
Distance travelled by C while it meets B = d – 9 
SA : SB = d + 11 : d – 11 
SB : SC = d + 9 : d – 9
=> 3/2 = [(d+11)(d+9)]/[(d-11)(d-9)] => d = 1, 99
20. E) Let CP of the article = 100
Labour Cost = 20
Raw Material = 10
Other Expenditure = 100 - 10 – 20 = 70
SP = 120
New Labour cost = 28
New Raw material cost = 12
New CP = 70+28+12=110
New SP = 120 × 110/100 = 132
New Profit percent = (132 – 110)/110 × 100 = 20
